    One Audi Deal said they've no idea about it so all the people above who have had success must be freak incidents...

    Some people on this forum....

    I was informed about this a while ago by some friends at Audi too. No point me going in though as Ive never had any issues.

    the 28E9 number is the recall ref number. audi know which recall your talking about when you ring with that ref number. the coilpacks are A06A 905 115 D.

    I suppose does anyone know if its a UK recall only, or would they have pity on a poor bankrupt Irish person?

    I can't believe I'm reading this. I've owned my 2003 S3 for 18 months and haven't had any coil packs replaced (80k miles). So what's the deal, just ring them up, say I want them checking in relation to this issue and book it in? How do I now whether they've been done before or not? If I'm entitled to this then I want to make sure I get it. Don't get much for free these days!

    Well its all true people, I took my A3 in to have the roof rust repaired (Audi paying 70% cost) and while I was there they told me that they were changing the coils at the same time, it was a complete surprise to me and I didn't even have to ask, they seemed surprised that I knew about it because the recall has only been out for a week, the dealer is Taunton Audi by the way.

    Yeah they won't have it, just said because the age and miles on the car(2001, 139k) thats the best they can do.

    As above, its a 12 year warranty, its in the handbook, take it in and dispute it mate, there are hundreds of people that have had the work done under warranty for free....

    so does all this mean that my local garage were lying? they said i wasn't entitled to coil packs on my car (AGU) and that the roof warranty was just 3 years? might try another local one.

    agu is exempt as we already have good coilpacks. someone posted before in this thread that our ones (hitachi i believe) arent included and it was only the later shitty ones.

    anti-corrosion warranty is what ur after in terms of the roof rust and thats 12 years
